Superbowl Strawberries


My sister-in-law made these cute Super Bowl strawberries. They really look scrumptious... i can almost taste the delicious chocolate that contrasts with the tart fruit... mmmmm! In case you are wondering why I said "almost taste", it is because my sister-in-law and her family lives hundreds of miles from us. So all I can do is to stare at the picture of these gorgeous strawberries... 
 
Oh, and she provided instructions on how to make them! So enjoy!


 What you need:

strawberries
semi-sweet chocolate morsels
white chocolate


What to do:

Wash strawberries and let dry.

Melt  semi-sweet chocolate on a double boiler. Using the tops of the strawberries as handles, dip them one by one in the melted chocolate. Place on parchment or wax paper and refrigerate for a few minutes to harden.

Meanwhile, melt some white chocolate and place them on a piping bag with a thin round tip. Remove strawberries from the fridge and pipe the football lines on the top. Return to the fridge to harden for a few minutes.


Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:

1. No double boiler? Your good ole' microwave will do!
2. Use a resealable bag and cut one corner as a piping bag if you don't have one. 
3. Having a hard time working with the chocolate? Add a little bit of canola oil (about a teaspoon or so). It would make the chocolate a bit thinner and easier to work with.
